Stevens is leading the way in creating urban stormwater management solutions, thanks to its new on-campus “Living Laboratory” led by associate professor Elizabeth Fassman-Beck, and the industry is taking notice.
A 2017 Rising Star award from Civil + Structural Engineering News magazine and a Young Civil Engineer of the Year award from the North Jersey chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers are just the tip of the iceburg for environmental engineering Ph.D. student Nadira Najib.
In addition to robust research in construction management and ocean engineering, the CEOE includes two National Centers of Excellence: the Maritime Security Center (MSC) and the Atlantic Center for the Innovative Design and Control of Small Ships (ACCeSS), as well as the Davidson Laboratory.
The structural engineering group focuses its research on multiscale modeling and reliability/uncertainty/risk assessment of complex/material systems.
This research explores material surface properties, energetic compounds deactivation and various aspects of soil properties.
Ocean, Coastal and Naval Engineering
This area includes the New York Harbor Observing and Prediction System (NYHOPS) that provides real-time data about the waters of NY/NJ.
Research centered on the study and application of the nonlinear interaction of acoustic and vibrational energy in various media and materials.
